Traditional Regions In London

The South East

The South East region includes some of the largest and most important cities in the United Kingdom. London, Britain's capital city, is right in its heart. The South East also contains some of the UK's most developed areas outside of the metropolitan capitals. As a whole, the South East has a very high GDP per capita, making it one of the richest parts of Europe.  Good luck.

The West Midlands

The West Midlands refers to the western part of the English region known as the Midlands, The London NET ( It contains 7 counties, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire. The region is dominated by three cities: Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Coventry. Although it is not considered an area with much tourism, the region is growing very quickly. This is due to high house prices in London and the South East but also job opportunities in Warwick and Birmingham.

Traditional Regions

The population of England is concentrated in the south and east, with only about one-fourth of the population living in areas such as the west Midlands and Yorkshire. To a considerable extent this has resulted from economic and social changes. Industrial development has been most extensive in the populous and economically active regions south of a line drawn between Lincolnshire on the north and Cheshire on the south. After World War II (1939-1945) there was great economic change as people moved from agricultural work to industrial work.

Many people left farming because the war had left them unable to produce enough food for their families, or they were affected by high taxes which prevented them from making any profit from their farm-work. By 1952 half of all employed people in Britain worked. The term region is used in several senses. Population and physical geography are not the only bases for the territorial division of England. Some regions are defined historically, like the Midlandap; others are defined by the form of government or administration, such as Greater London and the Southeast; and still others are defined by specific functions or uses, such as the motorway region or the area served by an oil refinery.
